The 15th Annual International Meeting, presented by the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, will include world-class speakers providing cutting-edge research and clinical information on current issues in breastfeeding medicine today. Our speakers are among leaders of research and clinical medicine in the world of breastfeeding and human lactation.
The ABM Annual Meeting focuses on the most authoritative and up-to-date clinical information on breastfeeding, spanning both maternal and child health issues. A significant educational opportunity, the 2010 meeting is an ideal context for participants to continue their professional education in a highly respected, stimulating environment, while earning continuing medical education credits. In addition to the Physician Team Meeting this year’s meeting will once again offer the Health Team Meeting, and the one-day pre-conference course, “What Every Physician Needs To Know About Breastfeeding.“
At the Physician Team Meeting participants will have the opportunity to meet and share knowledge and experiences with other participants and speakers from around the world, in addition to attending the ABM committee meetings, poster and platform abstract presentations, a banquet and reception, and other special events. This year’s meeting will feature the Fifth Annual Founders’ Lecture by John Queenan, MD, world-renowned authority on perinatal medicine and management of high-risk pregnancies. He is Deputy Editor of the “green journal,”Obstetrics and Gynecology and also on the editorial board of Breastfeeding Medicine.
